In this section you will find industrial Ethernet switches that support Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Power over Ethernet + (PoE+), compliant with the IEEE802.3af/at standards. Power over Ethernet (PoE) switches can drastically reduce installation costs of Ethernet networks by providing data and power over the same piece of cable. Up to 30W can be delivered over Cat 5/Cat 6 cabling to power devices such as IP cameras, wireless Access Points.
PoE managed switches provide advanced network features and remote management capabilities; they are extremely useful when combined with PoE because the PoE power budget can be managed from a central location, typically via a website based graphical user interface (GUI).
PoE unmanaged switches have no configuration interface or options. Their relative simplicity means that they are cost effective devices that can be deployed at the edge of a network and provide effective PoE and switching functionality.
